with a small rally followed by some selling, and a romney victory will be met with some buying. but i think that the money is going to stay held tightly in hand, because right now most people are still trading ben bernanke and the fed and the money-printing system, and we know that in the long run that's not a great system to be trading. so better to be in cash than to try and case for yield in a field where you can't really find true answers yet. > > but at least the economy is still clicking. good to have you on the show this morning, todd. take care. > > thank you so much. have a great day. some airlines have resumed limited service to some of new york's airports, but some have not, and it's leaving some passengers, especially business travelers, up in the air. in our cover story, the reasons your meetings may be cancelled are underwater at the end of a runway. airlines hope to resume flights to new york's laguardia airport thursday afternoon. limited service returned to jfk and newark wednesday.

"families need confidence to go out and spend going into christmas." tuesday, leaders from small business gave their views. "i said the more people have money in their pocket, the more they'll spend and we'll do better." "i suggested raising the minimum wage, tying it to an inflation index, and national leadership in online retail taxes." and there's a concerted public effort: the white house website features an appeal to "speak out to keep taxes from going up on the middle class." "if congress does nothing, taxes up $2200." that $2200 morphed into a white house twitter campaign - #my2k - to encourage americans to
